well, it seems I was wrong. i did a proper test yesterday. i have loose leaf tomoe river in whiote a cream too, compared them all together, loose leaf, nanami cafe b6 slim, kokuyo idea pad and writing exprience is all the same. well, my prefference is cream blank, which i havent seen in a notebook A6, 100 sheets format (somthing like midori md or monokaki makes). anyway, reason why i tought white paper is more rough was because last month i have bought few chinesse pens (jinhao 992, wing sung 3008, pilot 78g) with steel nibs which are not as smooth as my beloved german piston fillers from 60s and i used them on white paper.

I have a Nanami café b6, received today (top notch in every respect).
a bunch of Kokuyo a5 ideas 21x12.5 cm narrowed to 11cm to fit my traveler's notebook (from Rakuten), and also Taroko's regular size 68grs.
They all perform the same. For me Tomoegawa is the best performing paper for fountain pens.
Except for the line that spreads a little more than on
Midori MD, my next favorite paper.
I also use Kokuyo high grade Mio 60 grs as draft notebook. Very cheap (rakuten) a bit more feedback.

My preference is for lined, white, 52gsm Tomoe. I do have a ream of blank Tomoe that I use for letter writing...But I do wish it has faint lines throughout it.
